Default Calling All Tali Fans - Should We See Her Face In ME3?

As you fans know, Tali'Zorah (vas Normandy) has to be one of the most interesting (not to forget awesome) characters ever to have graced your TV or computer screen. For the previous two Mass Effect games we have fallen in love with this vulnerable yet spirited character despite the fact her face has yet to be seen by any fan. What drives our affection are two things: her personality and the fact that every fan of her as developed their own personal Tali for themselves, creating a face that suits their own tastes.

More to the point, if we're meant to see Tali's face in ME3, do we really want to? What if she turns out differently than you imagined, would you still like her?
The problem is is that the affection is so personal to every fan that not everybody will be pleased. Is it better if we were shown her face or leaving us guessing better cater to our own affection towards the character.

So what do you think, do you want to see her face in Mass Effect 3?

Miranda for the win, put Tali in the bin

But in all seriousness, I've played Mass Effect from the start, and I didn't like Tali. She is not that good a character to me. She seemed *far* too old for how old she actually was, about 18 when she left for her Pilgrimage iirc.
Also, isn't some of her appeal the fact that you can't see her face? I dunno, as I have stated that she has no appeal for me.

This has to be my favorite fanart representation of Tali...



However, if bioware stay's true to form (basing their characters appearances off real people) They would most likely make her similar in appearance to her voice actor, Liz Sroka. (which would be an acceptable face imo )

Dev, he looks more like a Na'vi than Tali...

((Unless your just talking about complexion, after all, she's rarely out of the suit...))

Rarely? I thought it was never....
Are you sure you're a Mass Effect fan?! JOKES

But that fan art is actually very well done, I don't think Quarians would be so human like. I always imagined them to have purple skin, the colour of their visor

Tali is the best female character in the game.Hands down.
Who wants Miranda? A boring stuck up human, super dooper. I want Tali Vas Normandy.
I was so pissssssed when they didn't show her face in ME2. I was like.."O_O, come on, show it, show it, show it....wait...WHAT THE FUUUUUU"
But, yeah. Hurry up ME3, I WANT MY TALI ROMANCE.

Tali Forever!!! DAMN RIGHT I WANT TO SEE HER FACE IN ME3! TALI FANS UNITE!
No matter what her face looks like, she will always have a place in our hearts. Besides, Miranda is boring. In ME1, Ashley was boring. Hell, even Liara was boring. But Tali, she is something different. Enough said.
TALI FOR ME3!

Actually, I thought they were similar character wise as LI's in ME1 and ME2. They both are a little shy, insecure. Flustered.

Idk, they both have the d'aaaaaw factor....

I'd like to see her face... I've imagined it before, but I really wouldn't be devastated or anything if she looked different to how I imagined her.
What I want though, is for her to be able to have a relationship with my Shepard...

Liara boring though? HERESY!! (Miranda though... I agree with you there )
I HATED Ashley, stupid xenophobe speciesist...
Spoiler: ME1

I personally feel the mystery would suit every fan, but obviously I would have no problem if BioWare make a face that I like but there's no doubt that not everybody will like BioWare's representation of Tali.

Concerning the artwork that Aihwa posted, I dont want that to be Tali but it's the best representation of her.

I hope BioWare get her right as they kinda have to show her face or else they'll be angry fans (including most of us)

So basically yes if BioWare do it right.
